• Killed stunning Heighliners Mele Tancred
Sergey Anashkevich:. "He was one of the most famous and crazy rope-walkers and vingsyuterov in the world I was lucky to be familiar with this turretless man: in 2012, he came to the Crimea with his team to shoot one of his famous clips and participate in the festival ekstremelnyh sports This Rock.
I remember when he came up the sling on the plateau Kachi-Kalon, made several beydzhamp-jumping from critically low levels for the clip, and then we were drinking beer around the tent in the valley and talked about his tricks.
And yesterday, he died ...
Died as often happens with people during the execution of the next trick. Tancred broke with 20-meter height from the balloon. Mele with his team & "Flying Frenchies" developed the plan for a new trick on the ground, stretched prischelknuvshis carbines to the sling, which in turn was attached to a ready to lift the balloon. for some unknown reason, he broke away from the balloon anchor and began to climb to the top. Friends Tancred had otschelknutsya by cable, but most Mele balloon rose into the air, where the athlete and fell off the rope down.
To make it clear what he did this guy, reporting that October day in 2012 when I met him ...
The beginning of October. One warm autumn day draws to a close.
On the 200-meter cliff on the plateau Kachi-Kalon that under the Bakhchisarai, dozens of people were frozen in silent admiration.
According stretched between two rocks sling, high above the ground, is a man in a red T-shirt. His breath echoes inside a huge rock grotto, which he passes through the air ... This is a special guest of the festival extreme This Rock, carried out these days. His name Melet Tancrède - one of the world's most famous Heighliners. The man who walks on the bridle at a great height. And not only walk, but also performs various stunts.
Highline - one of the varieties Slacklining. In turn, Slacklining - kind kanatohozhdeniya. Slack rope only loosely fixed, and deviates significantly from a straight line not only downward by gravity, but also in both directions, due to the efforts equilibrist.
The difference between walking on a tightrope is that instead of having to keep the center of gravity of the rope balancer should sum up the rope under your feet the center of gravity of the body. And this, as sleklaynery say difficult, but interesting.
Unlike Highline from Slacklining that it passes high above the ground. Athletes find places where you can at a high altitude pull the sling, go through it and perform various stunts.
The tricks are not always successful, and athlete-Extreme can easily break away from the rafters. The use of insurance necessary here.
The record height at which went Heighliners was taken in June 2013 on the Dufour peak in Switzerland Stephan Sigrist. Heighliners passed by sling at an altitude of 4600 meters.
Melet Tancrède - 32-year-old French athlete ekstremal was known in the world sleklayna as absolutely fearless.
In the photo he is preparing for exponential transition of the sling between the two extremities of the grotto of St. Anastasia in Kachi-Kalon.
The length of the sling about 60 meters. On the other side it is fixed well below the upper edge of the cliff, so the transition is only possible route back and forth. To get to the top "that" can not be the edge.
The further away from the edge, the greater the amplitude of the swing slings
As mentioned above, here the feet athlete brings the rope under his center of gravity
Shadow Dance ..
Breakdown ... Among the people loud sigh ..
But we need to know Meletus ... For him it is a thrill
Short vacation ...
... and back to the sling
Ahead of the return trip
The breath is audible to all spectators
The middle way
Tricks on hand at the end of the road ...
A bit of a rest, Mele rose above the hermitage of St. Anastasia for beysdzhampa. On the day they were filming the video with the team for one of his famous movies
Mele then said in broken Russian, "Oh, my lord, I implore you to fly with me." This amused the few spectators gathered
Then he played the fool ..... Yesterday was left lying on the ground
Video, to make it clear that it was for the people "
